    What would be more fun in this section is information/photos about the production of metal parts, woodwork and fasteners.
    What kind of walnut?
    I took no pictures during the making of it.

    It was all drawn in 3D Rhino first and then milled on a 3 axis CNC router. Some table saw cutting, but not much ... and some laser rastering of letters.

    The walnut (from the local lumberyard) is most probably plain old American.

    Beautiful camera. Light weight, stunningly beautiful along with the tripod. What is not to like. Those 3D and CNC machines are awesome.

    When picking it up, 19 lbs does not seem light to me at all. I could have done with less aluminium maybe, but this was never going to be a featherweight-just-pick-me-up-and-go kinda camera anyways ...
